BMW PGA Championship

Recommended Posts

Whilst the BMW PGA Championship may not be classed as the European Tour’s ‘flagship event’ nowadays with the advent of the Rolex Series, it has nevertheless attracted a classy field given its Ryder Cup significance and new spot in the calendar with 20 players from the OWGR top-50 in attendance. Rory McIlroy headlines at 11/2 following his FedEx Cup triumph last month, however with the likes of Jon Rahm, Paul Casey, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson and Tommy Fleetwood here, as well as a smattering of PGA Tour players including Tony Finau, Viktor Hovland, Patrick Reed and Billy Horschel, we’re looking at one of the best fields assembled here for a number of years.

Hit two thirds of fairways, three quarters of greens and scramble and putt in the top dozen or so and you’ll be there or thereabouts is pretty much how recent winners since the original Els re-design have got the job done. Even when weather conditions have led to higher or lower scores, it’s still tended to be players who’ve done sufficiently well in all aspects of their game who’ve prevailed here. Traditionally this has been a strong all-round test and contenders can’t be lacking in any particular area of their game this week if they want to succeed. The top-6 finishers last year all ranked 8th or better when it came to GIR on the week.

Selections are: Tommy Fleetwood (22/1), Matt Wallace (28/1), Eddie Pepperell (100/1), Guido Migliozzi (200/1) & Paul Dunne (350/1),
